Publisher's Summary

Titan Group is expanding. New recruits mean Jared Westin has potential new hires to scrutinize. What he didn't expect was his very pregnant wife Sugar to finagle her way onto the surveillance team as the prospects were assessed.

Her involvement in the simple observation goes dangerously wrong. She and best friend Lexi Black stumble into a problem with Russian mobsters. Sugar is forced to draw on her old ATF tricks, but weeks from her due date, she has no choice but to team up with Bishop O'Kane, a potential new recruit ,and Parker Black, Lexi's hacker husband, who must go undercover.

Introducing New Additions to Titan

More Sugar and Jarrod and Lexi and Parker but we get a little more background on Jarrod as a simple surveillance turns into a quick op. This should be read after Parker & Lexi’s story. It is quick and pretty mild for a Titan book though Sugar and Jarrod’s personalities ring fairly true-just a bit more mellow than expected given the circumstances. Hope to see more of the extended family. Narration again good but would be better with the right female partner.

Leaves You Wanting More

What made the experience of listening to Live Wire the most enjoyable?

What makes listening to a book is having the perfect narrator read to you. And Mr. Kafer was the perfect choice. He hooked me on both the series and wanting to see what else he'll read to me.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It has to be Jared. This story shows the incentive to what he does. Sad news is that this is just a teaser. The good news is that it should lead the reader to Westin's Chase. It also has you wanting to know more about who Sugar is.

What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is the perfect choice. I have no problem having an idea what Jared Westin may look like and certainly sounds like. He made my choice of my next book in the series very easy. I have to know more about what Jared and Sugar's story is and Mr. Kafer just happens to narrate that story as well.

Any additional comments?

If you're looking for an audiobook that will take your mind off a day that may not be going too well then this book is the perfect choice. Add in the perfect narrator and everything else will just disappear. Mr. Kafer makes it very easy to just concentrate on what the author has written. He doesn't attempt to do a female voice and that's perfect.

This is one book that I can see myself listening to more than once. As I get more into the series, I would also have to come back and listen to this one. It's a great way to pass the time on a commute that can at times get frustrating. Even though this is a shorter story the author doesn't shortchange her reader by chopping up the story. But it's a great way to get hooked on an author and her series. I can't wait for more.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Audio Copy of this book.

Fast Paced Action Packed Fun!

I got the opportunity to listen to the Audible version of Live Wire for review and really enjoyed it! I don't usually go for Romantic Suspense, but Live Wire was such the perfect mix of action packed and character driven that I listened to it all in one chunk! I really liked that while Titan Group could be a completely testosterone fueled organization and the whole book be driven by the abundance of alpha males and bad guys, the women were really recognized for their strength and contributions to the mission - even while eight months pregnant! Meeting Jared, Sugar, Lexi, Parker, and Bishop really makes me want to (of course) start at the beginning of the series and continue on with the next one (which I think will be Bishop's story). I give Live Wire 4 out of 5 wine glasses and I especially appreciated the rich timbre of the narrators voice. Listening to the book really helped the time spent handling my household duties fly by!

A steamy glimpse into the Titan World!

What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jeffery Kafer’s voice is deep and dark, which makes it perfect for a romantic suspense story. I really enjoyed his narration of the audiobook!

Any additional comments?

I’ve been hearing so many positive things about Cristin Harber’s popular Titan series that I jumped at the opportunity to review the Live Wire novella audiobook. I do love a good romantic suspense series and Live Wire does give those new to the series, like me, a lovely taste and feel for some of the characters that make up the Titan group. Although Live Wire didn’t explain the role of the Titan group, I was able to get the feel that Titan is made up of highly fierce individuals with various specialized skills who carry out dangerous operations. Live Wire also gives fans of the series more of couples Jared and Sugar (from Westin’s Chase) and Parker and Lexi (from Black Dawn).

Filled with steamy romantic encounters and a splash of intrigue and suspense, Live Wire is a quick and alluring novella to sample the Titan series. I’m now very interested in reading the other stories, especially Westin’s Chase and Black Dawn.

I loved this one

Lexi and a heavily pregnant Sugar go on a surveillance mission to check out a possible new recruit for Titan – Bishop O’Kane. A safe and easy job, or so they thought. When the gym they’re checking out is taken over by terrorists, they must work together with Bishop to get out in one piece.

Live Wire is a quick, easy listen. Under 3 hours. It’s really a cute story. It gives more depth to Jared Westin and explains why he is the way he is. Of course, this is Jared and Sugar, so expect some sexy time…although, Parker and Lexi give them a run for their money in the sexy time department. It was fun spending a little more time with two of the fan-favourite couples, who don’t disappoint in this book. The introduction to Bishop was fun and set’s up the listener for Bishop’s Queen (I already love him!)

I love Cristin Harber’s writing style, she always hits home with a great story that is well written and will have you laughing and sat on the edge of your seat wondering what’s going to happen. Not many authors can grab a listener’s attention in a novella enough to get the listener invested in the characters and the story, this isn’t a problem that Cristin has. From the opening chapter to the final one, she has me riveted.

Two of my favourite scenes are Bishop’s first meeting with Sugar, it was funny and quite endearing. I definitely wanted more of Bishop after that introduction. Also, Parker’s geek make-over, his interactions with Beth were hilarious. And let's take a moment to think about Jared and a baby…sigh, that big bad alpha is a big softie!

Jeffrey Kafer’s performance was great, as usual. He is awesome as Jared, he really plays the big bad alpha guy that totally melts for the women in his life well. Although there was one line that I had to listen to a couple of times because it sounded different than usual, maybe a southern accent, but just for the one line. And it could have easily just been me being weird. The subtle changes in his voice for the different characters really stand out. I’ve always loved how smoothly he transitions from male to female characters and that still stands with this book.

Catch up with some of the key players of Titan

I have to admit that I have not read or listened to any of the books in the Titan series by Cristin Harber before, but, I had the opportunity to listen to the audiobook of Live Wire so I jumped on it and I am so glad I did.

This story had me crying several times especially with the prologue, man that just gutted me. I enjoyed getting to know some of the key players in the Titan series and I look forward to reading more of this series.

Let me make a mention about the narrator of Live Wire, Jeffrey Kafer, since I did listen to the audiobook version, he has a very sexy voice and I could listen to him all day long....seriously Yummy!

Kick-butt novella!

This audiobook is so. Much. Fun!

Whether you've read all, some, or even none of the other books in this series, you'll enjoy the heck out of this one--it really does have something for everyone. If you've read other series books, especially and , you'll love seeing Sugar (heroine of Westin's Chase ) and Lexi (heroine of ) teamBlack Dawn up to check out a possible new recruit for Titan. Naturally things are going to take a wrong turn as they do, which will give established series fans and new fans alike a chance to see the men and women of Titan at their best, as they unite to take down the bad guys. You'll meet the potential new recruit who's sure to star in his own series book as well (spoiler alert: it's Bishop's Queen ) and as a bonus, you'll witness a life-changing event for one of the two main couples in this book.

If that all sounds like a lot for a novella, you're not wrong--yet somehow none of the plot lines feel short changed, and we get to see plenty of tender (and a few steamy!) moments for the couples involved. Plus, the narrator does a fantastic job and has a truly kick-a$$ voice to boot. He does a great alpha male, yet still voices the female POVs convincingly. A must-listen!

Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A

Titan series are better in Audible!

Live Wire is my first Novella I have experienced as an Audio Book! I loved everything about it. I was reluctant at first because I am use to reading at my own pace (fast) and was not sure I could handle it. The experience was amazing. I was able to get through the Novella and not feel tied down. I was walking around while listening to the book. I love that it did not take anything away from the Titan series. So let me tell you why I love this Novella!

Jared is still his sexy alpha self who loves his wife and growing family. I love Sugar and the things that come out of her mouth. She has always been bad a#$ and does not back down even while she is pregnant. Lexi is out of her comfort zone and is in danger with the Russian mafia We are introduced to Bishop who is in line to try out for the Titan team. I really liked him and can not wait for more behind the scenes of Bishop. The thrills, the excitement and all the sexy scenes have you sweating and heart working over time. Parker who is usually shy and stays to himself made me melt when he finally got to Lexi. Who knew he could be so in control and commanding.

I love at the end how the story brings it back to family. I loved when Jared and Sugar welcome their baby into the world. You do not want to miss out on this Novella if you are a fan of the Titan series!

Live Wire

Being nine months pregnant didn't stop Sugar from wanting in on the action. Jared being Boss Man--wrapped around her finger, let her work with Lexy on surveillance of one of the new recruits Titan was considering.What could go wrong? Famous last words.

Bishop wasn't working for Titan yet. Helping out a buddy shouldn't have been a problem. Tying up his prospective boss's wife? Yeah, problem.

This is a short novella with all of the Titan action, love, and snark of all the rest of the books. Jeffrey Kafer is a great narrator. You will be spending the next two and a half hours consumed with old friends and a new one as well. Enjoy--I did and recommend to all.
